Brooks' 34 Leads Rockets Past Lakers
Brooks demonstrated the same versatility Duck fans were familiar with by his outside shooting and his ability to drive to the basket. Brooks was 12-for-20 in field goal shooting including 4-for-9 in 3-point attempts and was perfect from the free throw line by hitting all six of his attempts. He also recorded three assists, two rebounds and a blocked shot in the pivotal Game 4 in the Western Conference playoffs.
Brooks is the 10th all-time leading scorer at Oregon with 1,511 points in 115 games, a starter in 110 contests. He is one of 29 players in school history to have amassed 1,000 points or more.
The Rockets were thought to be out of an chance to compete with the Lakers when it was announced that 7-6 Yao Ming was lost for the remainder of the playoffs with a fractured foot. However, the Rockets rallied behind Brooks and a hot shooting Shane Battier who nailed five 3-pointers of his own to help the Rockets build a 59-36 halftime lead.
The Lakers were led by center Pau Gasol's 30 points. Kobe Bryant scored just 15 points on a miserable 7-of-17 shooting performance.
The series picks up again on Tuesday at the Staples Center in LA and the game will be televised by TNT.
